Proud to be Dumb?

Today, as I was getting into my car in the grocery store parking lot, I noticed the license plate frame on a car near mine. It read:

"Dumbs are not always blondes."

A dark-haired girl, probably in her mid-20's, was getting out of the car.

I've been puzzling about this ever since I saw it. Now, what would possess someone to put that frame on her own car? If it were on a car driven by a blonde, I could see it as intended to be directed to others, sort of a "don't assume I'm dumb because I'm blonde" sort of thing.

But the girl getting out of the car had very dark hair. Maybe it wasn't her car? Or she's proud to be dumb? She's jealous of all the attention blondes get their alleged stupidity? Hmmm, maybe she doesn't get what it means (and thereby advertising the truth of the sentiment)?

Or maybe someone put it on her car and she hasn't noticed it yet?

Go figure.

If it was the license plate (not the cover??) could it have meant DAMES are not always blonde??

I don't know why anyone would brag about being dumb...

Maybe she used to be blond and never removed it.

Apparently it's the "in" thing now to be dumb; i.e. Paris Hilton and her misspellt "YOUR STUPID" T-shirt.

Gee, maybe that was Paris Hilton in disguise?!

I think she was making fun of how blondes would mess up saying "Blondes aren't all dumb" or something like that.

I wish I never took my Kerry/Edwards sticker off my van. I wonder how many Bush/Cheney stickers have been peeled off in the past few months.

There should be a sticker "Republicans aren't all dumb"
